[ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- aidy bryant, star of "american gods," actor ian mcshane, music from raelynn, featuring the 8g band with lucius. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] ladies and gentlemen, seth meyers. >> seth: good evening, everybody. i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] wonderful. absolutely wonderful to hear. in that case, let's get to the news. today was "take your child to work day." "way ahead of you," said this guy. [ light laughter ] according to a new cnn poll, 44%
of americans approve of the job president trump is doing as he approaches his 100th day in office. while the other 56% said "it's only been 100 days?" [ laughter and applause ] "that means -- ugh! ugh!" [ light laughter ] according to a new report, german chancellor angela merkel was recently forced -- forced to explain to president trump 11 times how trade works with european countries. she started to lose it around nine. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] customs officers at jfk airport recently arrested two passengers who tried to smuggle ten kilos of cocaine into the country by taping it to their legs. and they might have gotten away with it, if they hadn't worn shorts. [ laughter and applause ]
"no, man. no man, they'll be expecting pants. we wear shorts, trust me. that's the way to go." [ light laughter ] yesterday was melania trump's 47th birthday, which means that her facebook wall was full of birthday wishes from friends and family. let's check it out. okay, here we go. mark posted, "happy birthday, melania." janet posted, "you rock girl. happy birthday." those are pretty standard. let's see who else wished her a happy birthday. let's see, donald trump jr. posted "congrats on being eight years older than me." [ audience ohs ] [ laughter and applause ] vice president mike pence posted, "i'm wishing you a happy birthday on facebook, because based on the rules of my marriage, i'm not allowed to be alone in a room with you." [ laughter and applause ] nice, though. it's a nice message. donald trump's first wife ivana posted, "my condolences." [ laughter ] and oh look, it looks like marla maples liked it. [ laughter and applause ] that's a share. tiffany trump posted "happy birthday, would love to meet you
someday." [ audience ohs ] [ applause ] secretary of education betsy devos i think posted happy birthday. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] we'll give the benefit of the doubt. benefit of the doubt. former national security, now disgraced, michael flynn posted, well, okay i'm going to assume -- we'll assume that says happy birthday. [ laughter ] white house senior adviser stephen miller posted, "i hope it got the lotion i sent, and i hope it is putting the lotion on its body, or else it gets the hose." [ audience ohs ] [ light laughter ] amnesty international posted, "need help?" [ light laughter ] ben carson posted, "merry christmas." [ laughter and applause ] bill o'reilly posted "today is your day, sweet cheeks." [ laughter ] the nypd posted, "did you get our card? it's a bill for $60 million." [ cheers and applause ] for whenever, whenever you find
the time to chip in. and finally, donald trump posted, "happy birthday to my beautiful, current wife, melania." [ light laughter ] happy birthday, melania. an ohio gift shop owner reported that statues of bigfoot were stolen from outside her store earlier this week. but you gotta respect the cleveland browns' fresh approach to the nfl draft. [ light laughter ] our head writer alex baze said that joke wouldn't work and i said, "yeah it will." [ light laughter ] so now i give him the knowing point of a man who knows when he was wrong. [ light laughter ] also, you're fired. [ light laughter ] a third grade class in new jersey recently found a boa constrictor in the back of their classroom. even scarier, they didn't find billy. [ audience ohs ] [ light laughter ]
a jeweler is selling a darth vader mask made of solid gold for $1.4 million. though if you love "star wars" that much, i doubt you'll get to tell someone you're their father. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter and applause ] "luke, i am your father's friend." [ light laughter ] and finally, a campaign in the u.k. is encouraging parents to teach their children the accurate words for their genitals from a young age. of course, in the u.k., genitals are called crisps. [ laughter ] ladies and gentlemen we have a great show for you tonight! [ cheers and applause ] we, unfortunately -- senator bernie sanders was scheduled to be a guest on our show tonight. he's not here. he had to go to mar-a-lago to golf, can you believe it? [ light laughter ] no -- he is in washington, d.c., because there may be a senate vote tonight. and so, we're gonna have him back on at some time. i always feel a little better about washington when bernie's
there. so were happy he is there and we'll get him back next time. but we're joined -- [ cheers and applause ] by our -- our savior for the night, we just called her up a couple hours ago, aidy bryant from "saturday night live." [ cheers and applause ] she's back on the show. also, he is the star of the critically acclaimed new star series "american gods," he is one of my favorite actors. ian mcshane is joining us tonight. [ cheers and applause ] and she is a rising star in country music who has an incredible performance planned for us tonight. raelynn is joining us. [ cheers and applause ] so we have a lot of great stuff to get to. before we get to that, as he nears the 100th day of his presidency, donald trump is dealing with foreign crises from a potential conflict with north korea, to a standoff over trade with canada. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: there have been a lot of polls lately, suggesting
americans aren't exactly thrilled with trump's performance so far. and yet despite those numbers, trump of course, still has a high opinion of his first 100 days in office. as a reporter who spoke with him yesterday found. >> did he seem pleased with how things are going? was he -- yeah, how did he seem? >> you know, i asked him to give himself a grade and he did give himself an "a." >> seth: of course he did. [ light laughter ] there's no point in asking trump to give himself a grade. that's like asking kanye west what he thinks of his new album. [ light laughter ] now, trump may be confident on the outside, but behind the scenes he and republicans have been scrambling to get literally any kind of positive achievement on the scorecard before the 100 day mark. some of what they've tried to do is what you expect. some new executive orders, reviving their failed healthcare plan, but they're also trying a fun new direction, a confrontation with canada. >> is a trade war brewing with our neighbors to the north? >> the u.s. and canada now in the middle of a trade dispute. commerce department moving to impose a tariff on softwood lumber that enters the united states from canada. >> the trump administration
going after canada like we haven't seen in decades. >> i wouldn't call it a war, but a -- but a trade spat. >> spat. >> a spat? >> with canada! >> over dairy farmers and lumberjacks? two friends, two allies, two neighbors in a fight over dairy farmers and lumberjacks. >> seth: a fight over dairy farmers and lumberjacks sounds like a canadian romance novel. [ laughter and applause ] but seriously, it's like all the jokes we made before the election are starting to come true. "if we elect trump, we're gonna end up fighting with canada. ha, ha, ha. he did what?" [ laughter ] now the short explanation is that the trump administration has accused canada of undercutting u.s. dairy farmers and lumber suppliers, and retaliated by putting a tariff on canadian lumber coming into the united states. but we're talking about a very specific type of lumber here, which means there's at least one upside to this whole thing. we get to enjoy news anchors using this very specific phrase. >> the trump administration announcing tariffs of up to 24%
on canadian softwood lumber. [ laughter ] >> canadian softwood lumber. >> softwood lumber. >> softwood lumber. >> softwood lumber. >> softwood lumber. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> seth: get your minds out of the gutter, you guys. [ light laughter ] not gonna take that as an opportunity to make a bunch of penis jokes. [ light laughter ] i'm just saying that donald trump doesn't wanna be slapped with soft canadian wood. [ laughter and applause ] so he's clamping down on it. [ cheers and applause ] so what? what specifically, does the trump administration object to? commerce secretary wilbur ross explained that the white house feels canada is charging artificially low prices for their lumber using a word that's even more fun that softwood lumber. >> in canada, the forests are owned by the individual provinces. so the provinces subsidize the cutting down of lumber, this technical term being stumpage. [ laughter ]
>> seth: and this is all very confusing for trump, because stumpage is his nickname for donald jr. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] "give me my son. no, not vanilla bigfoot, stumpage." [ light laughter ] trump himself even went one step further than ross, complaining about the public image of canada and claiming canadians may not be as nice as they seem. >> people don't realize canada has been very rough on the united states. everyone thinks of canada as being wonderful and so do i. i love canada, but they've outsmarted our politicians for many years. >> seth: canada's been rough on us? come on, the worst thing canada's ever done, is try to pass off ham as bacon. [ light laughter ] and remember, the worst thing we ever did to canada was just one year ago. >> a game between two u.s. teams last night officially ended any faint hope for a canadian team to make the playoffs. this will be the first time since 1970, the nhl playoffs will be all american. >> seth: no canadian teams made
the playoffs, prime minister. what should we do? lower the price of soft wood. [ laughter and applause ] in fact, trump was apparently so upset with canada that as of yesterday, his white house was threatening to terminate the landmark free trade deal between the u.s., mexico and canada. >> the white house considering drafting an executive order to pull out of the north american free trade agreement, nafta. >> seth: something tells me this isn't the first time trump has had to pull out because of some soft wood. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "i'm -- i'm sorry nafta, this has never happened before." [ laughter ] "come on, donald jr. sorry, come on, stumpage." [ laughter ] now last night, trump backed down from his threat, but a potential trade war with canada isn't the only foreign crisis
trump is dealing with. there's also the possibility of an actual war with north korea. on wednesday, the trump white house urgently scheduled a briefing with all 100 senators on developments in the north korea situation. but the way he did it, was very odd. >> an unusual meeting today, at the white house. so unusual, that just about everyone who was either watching it or was a part of it, couldn't remember it ever happening before. senators went on a fleet of buses from the capitol on a roughly two mile ride to the white house. >> field trip, the entire senate bused to the white house for an unprecedented briefing on north korea. >> seth: that's right, they took buses on a field trip to the white house. [ light laughter ] did they have to use the buddy system? lindsey graham was probably like, "i want john mccain. he's my best friend." [ light laughter ] so the trump administration made a big spectacle of busing the entire united states senate to the white house, for a briefing that could have easily happened at the senate. to some it seemed like more of a p.r. move than an actual briefing, which is why at least one senator, bernie sanders, decided not to participate. [ cheers and applause ] >> what i did not want to be is
part of a photo opportunity or a political effort on the part of the white house. i did not want to be part of a road show for the white house. >> seth: and you know it's a bad move when a socialist refuses to take public transportation. [ laughter and applause ] "besides, and let me make something clear. the only bus i take is the chinatown bus. 12 bucks each way, and it only catches fire once a month!" [ laughter ] "free heat." [ light laughter ] but it turns out bernie's instincts might have been right, because later after the meeting, many senators expressed frustration at how little new information was presented. in fact, even republican senator bob corker was at a loss for words, and even seemed a little defeated when asked to describe the briefing. >> how was the briefing? >> it was fine. >> did you guys learn anything in there that you didn't -- didn't know before? >> i didn't, really. it was -- it was an okay briefing. >> what do you mean it was an okay briefing?
you didn't really learn much? >> i -- it was, it was okay. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: basically now, when senators end meetings with donald trump, they just wanted around the steps of the capitol like, trying to find democracy. [ light laughter ] "i think i left it around here somewhere. i don't know." [ light laughter ] "we're real happy with the president." [ light laughter ] so they made a show of bringing senators to the white house, which might lead you to believe the president would be there. but according to one democratic senator, he made only a brief appearance and his entrance was very weird. >> i know the president stopped by the meeting for what, about 14 minutes is what we understand. did he add anything? did he answer any questions at all, senator? >> no, and it wasn't 14 minutes. he came out from behind the curtain, he introduced the panel. he says he has a very good team, i'm sure they're developing a good plan, some comments like
that. and he said thank you for coming, and then he disappeared. [ laughter ] >> seth: why was he behind a curtain? [ laughter ] how long was he there? [ laughter ] "are they here yet? are they on the bus?" [ light laughter ] "this is going to be so much fun." [ laughter and applause ] trump probably spends more time thinking about how he enters the room than actual policy. "i'll hide behind the curtain, and then you bring him in. i'll come out, it will blow everyone's minds." [ light laughter ] "oh, and before i forget, at the state of the union, i want to be lowered from the ceiling on a crescent moon." [ laughter and applause ] so those are the foreign crises trump is dealing with. meanwhile, here at home he's clashing yet again with the courts after yet another one of his executive orders was blocked by a judge. this one about withholding money from so called sanctuary cities. and of course, trump was not happy about the court's decision, which comes after two different versions of his travel ban, were also blocked. trump tweeted, "first the ninth circuit rules against the ban
and now it hits again on sanctuary cities. both ridiculous rulings. see you in the supreme court." there's just one problem, with that tweet, the judge who issued the ruling is not on the ninth circuit court of appeals. trump doesn't even know how the court system works. "and if we lose in the supreme court, we'll take our case to the highest court in the land, the food court." [ laughter ] "justice cinnabon." trump's other problem with the court is its location. a white house statement blasted the judge who ruled against the order as a san francisco judge, which is becoming something of a theme for the white house. they seem to think judges in certain parts of the country are illegitimate. you might remember last week, when attorney general jeff sessions said this about the hawaii judge who blocked trump's travel ban. >> i really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the pacific, can issue an order that stops the president of the united states from what appears to be, clearly his statutory and constitutional powers.
>> seth: that's right, an island in the pacific. i guess i should just be happy he knows where hawaii is. if you pointed to hawaii on a map and asked trump to name it, he'd probably be like, "is it tiny china?" [ light laughter ] so the courts have blocked several of trump's executive orders. and his major legislative initiatives have failed. all he has to show for his first 100 days is a fight with canada. is there a word we can use to sum this all up? >> stumpage. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with more "late night." [ cheers and applause ] ♪

♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: welcome back, everybody. before we continue with the show, if i may, there is something that i have been meaning to get off my chest for a while. i usually bring -- i usually don't bring my personal grievances on the show, and talking about this particular issue has cost me friends in the past. but, you know what, i'm just going to say it. 3-d movies suck, man! >> at this point in the broadcast, seth launched into a 60 second, profanity laden tirade about 3-d movies. and how, in his opinion, you end up paying more money for a worse movie experience. network policy prevents us from broadcasting his comments, but due to a technical issue, we were forced to air this portion of the show.
in short, seth believes that 3-d movies are a scam created by hollywood fat cats because they ran out of real ideas in 1992. he suggested that the 3-d glasses you get at the theater are so un-hygienic, they're basically bowling shoes for your face. [ light laughter ] adding, "i don't want to see a movie about a flesh eating virus, while i'm getting a flesh eating virus." seth further criticized 3-d movies suggesting that a better name for them would be, "instant headache." and that they should come with two advil. he accused 3-d movies of being too gimmicky. and said, "i'm not paying an extra $5 to see optimus prime wave a fender in my face. [ light laughter ] he then pointed directly at the camera and shouted, "hey, michael bay, you know what you should make three dimensional? your characters." [ light laughter ] seth then literally patted himself on the back. [ light laughter ] he then pulled out a pair of 3-d glasses and said, "if i'm going to pay $20 for special glasses, they better let me see through clothes. [ light laughter ] he then put them on, and looking genuinely surprised said, "oh my god, it worked." at which point seth's cue card guy, wally, said "actually, seth, i just forgot to wear clothes today."
[ laughter ] to which seth replied, "wally, what's wrong with you?" to which wally replied, "i don't know." [ laughter and applause ] then, with a crazed smile, seth turned to the window, which is not a real window, and screamed, "big macs rule, imax drools!" and then pulled a big mac out of a bag labeled "wendy's", and took a bite. the restaurant chain wendy's does not sell big macs. but, according to seth, they "know how to make it if you know how to ask." [ light laughter ] seth then instructed viewers at home to put on their own 3-d glasses as he was about to unveil a special 3-d effect that the show had spent a lot of money on. [ laughter and applause ] nbc would like viewers to disregard seth's opinions about 3-d movies as they do not reflect the network's position, and do not make any sense. we now resume our broadcast. >> seth: and if you disagree, you can suck 3-ds. whoo!

[ laughter ] >> seth: you did a sketch on a previous -- i guess the last -- was it the last episode of snl? >> yeah, it was. >> seth: and it was called "before the show," and you got to wear some braces, and this was backstage at a high school production. >> yes. [ light laughter ] yeah, so -- >> seth: and were you -- go ahead, tell me about the sketch. >> well, so basically, the
sketch was a group of middle school girls, who are like, before the show, and they've taken this so seriously. they're so proud of what they done -- what they've done, and then you know, they cut to the show and it's very weak singing from like middle schoolers. where it's like -- ♪ [ light laughter ] but they feel so confident about it. >> seth: yeah. >> they believe it's tony worthy, you know? >> seth: well, i remember that from both middle school and high school, you would walk around and the theater kids who had a show about to come on -- they were walking around. they were the cocks of the walk. they were so proud of themselves. >> oh, totally. and i talked so much [ bleep ] on like other teams, being like, she honestly sucks, and she's not taking this seriously. [ laughter ] and then like in reality, we were all playing, like dogs or whatever. like, i'm sure it was not good. >> seth: now you did a lot of theater, and you were telling us, you did improv with middle schoolers, but you were older. >> yes, i did like -- i found like a teen improv troup where i was like 17-years-old, but everyone else was like 12 or 13 years old, which is a big difference.
i was basically an adult woman -- >> seth: yeah. >> like, clopping around with these children, but we also did plays. and -- >> seth: so scripted plays, same age gap. >> yes, yes and we did musicals -- you know, musicals, but it was all on a jewish theme, because it was a jewish theater company. [ laughter ] and i'm not jewish, but it was like if they got a stage i'll get out there. [ laughter ] very sad. and so they would do these like jewish plays, and because i was so much older than all the other kids i always had to play like the dead mother. [ laughter ] who like returns in a dream. once i played a dead mother who came back and talk to her daughters about the importance of her old menorah. >> seth: oh, my god. >> and i had to sing a song that was called like ♪ my mother's menorah ♪ [ laughter ] and then in that same play, i got -- also got to play like a fun character, which was the hebrew school teacher, who was just a like kooky lady who walked around and was like, "don't forget the pepper in the latkes."

shouldn't have played, but my cast mates were like 8-years-old so -- [ light laughter ] >> seth: i want to congratulate you. you got engaged. >> i did. >> seth: you got engaged.

>> have you ever we heard of it? [ light laughter ] but, so yeah, i pitched to lin-manuel miranda, and then when i got home, i had like my purse, and our mail, and all these boxes, and i walked in the door. and our dog had a bow tie on, and i was like, my dog doesn't wear a bow tie. [ laughter ] where is he going tonight? [ laughter ] and then, basically the second i shut the door, a man who i discovered was conner, frantically came around the corner and was just like, "will you marry me?" [ laughter and applause ] and no box, no i love you, no fance, just a man in full terror, standing very far from a dog in a bow tie -- [ laughter ] just holding a loose ring going, "will you marry me?" [ light laughter ] and i -- i was like, "what?" i truly couldn't comprehend what
was happening and i just kept saying, "is this a joke? are you doing a joke?" and then i said, "of course i'll marry you." >> seth: oh, that's great. >> i love you, and it was really nice. aws >> seth: that's great. >> yeah, it was nice. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so happy for both of you. >> thank you. i asked him -- i asked him, i was like, "why did you do this?" and he was like, "well you've always said you wanted it to happen like, in our house, if it ever happened." and i was like, "that's true. i wanted it to be private." but i also knew you probably wanted to be wearing like, a bra and have like a -- have makeup on, and so, he was like, i knew i had to do it after you had just gotten home from work. [ laughter ] otherwise, there would never be another moment. [ laughter ] so he was right. he did the right thing.

micheal green, who i'd worked with before on a show called "kings." and the book came out, and it's one of the -- we went to comic con last year. and gaiman was like, you don't realize it, but wow. the reception was like a, you know, rock star. in that world of futuristic -- and he loves co-mingling, talking about his work, which takes the pressure off, 'cause they can deal with social media. then you can just get on with the acting. so when it came to it, i mean, he's very much -- he wrote a blueprint for a great bold television series. and so far, that's -- people have received it that way. it's out there. it's bold. it's brash. a lot of shows say, you know, "oh, we're pushing the envelope. it's a different tv show." this actually is i think. >> seth: it really is -- >> but i didn't see it. i was telling you before your -- your research. i hadn't seen it, 'cause i don't got to rushes and see all that, you know. >> seth: yeah. >> so i saw it for the first time down at the austin, south by southwest. where they showed it on a big screen, and i was absolutely like, "oh, yeah." >> seth: yeah. >> it's like, that's why you join. >> seth: and you can tell in the first 15 minutes it is not -- it is very unlike -- >> oh, you could always tell.

mythology.
